Title: Back to Astral Island!
Post by: Lumaza on February 22, 2020, 04:22:59
 On another recent thread a member asked a question about whether or not their "Happy Place", this being a place that they have created in the "NPR" of their own design. They asked if the place would change depending on whether they were in Focus 2 or 3. according to Frank Kepple's 4 levels of focus.

 During my daily Phase soak (meditative journey while in the bathtub), I was contemplating that exact thought. Then my thought pattern got "hi-jacked" and I found myself in my own Happy Place. This time though there seemed to be a number of "designated meeting areas. Each had it's own "scenic" viewpoint. I was then shown how we can go at the intent to be on Astral Island experiment that was done here in the past, but unfortunately failed.

 So here is what I was shown and how we can actually do this. First off, it takes 6 things to be successful with this.
1. Practice-you must practice. You can do short little visuals in the daytime or go into a long experience via your chosen method of accessing the NPR. By practicing often, you will find that you can almost instantly "be there".
2. Patience-Rome wasn't built in a day. Neither was Astral Island. You can't force this to happen. You can intend on it though. For now if you wish, just observe the areas you find. You don't need to "react" just yet. Get comfortable with it.
3. Visualization- I can already hear the moans. I can't visualize. I hear that from people all the time. Everyone can visualize. The thing is, I am not talking about using your actual eyes to do it. I am talking about accessing your "Mind's eye".
 Simple exercise. Close your eyes and mentally count to ten. Now think of the color blue, the color red, the color green. Now think of a square, a triangle, a circle. At any time did a visual appear in response to that thought? If it did, You accessed your "Mind's eye". This is the area that accompanies a mental association. Example: think of the color red, A very quick image of something red, like a Apple might appear. It's because you are accessing your memory or in more of a technical explanation, you have accessed the "data" from you mainframe. This is the area that we want to be in. This is where we want these images to appear and they will.
4. Motion-Through the years I have posted many techniques and methods here to jump start a "etheric" body motion feeling. From things like the "Phantom wiggle" all the way to my 6pt exercises. I have found that nothing brings me deeper into a self trance then thought of motion. Whether it be moving forward, Whether that image be a driving simulation, rollercoaster. etc. The mental thought of movement in a some direction will always have an accompanying image. You just have to be patient until it reveals itself.
5. Will Power-You need to be self motivated, with a desire to succeed. Knowing you will. Don't go into this with the attitude of I will "try" it to see what happens. Either do it or don't. The word "try" implies defeat and failure. I wrote a whole thread on this very thing.
6. Belief-When you believe it, you can perceive it and therefore you can conceive it.

                                                                        To the Island we go

Since Hollywood and everyone seem to like "remakes" so much, I figure we could all build Astral Island anew again!  :-) Kind of like a "facelift", per se.

 My visual to my Happy Place, which seems just like the first Astral Island created here years ago, begins with the motion of movement forward. I then see that I am moving quickly across some vast ocean. A Island soon reveals itself and I come in for a landing on the beach. (When I experience the NPR, I choose to be a simple point of consciousness. I won't see appendages unless they are needed. That way, I find no limitations)

 So, now I am on the beautiful clean sand of the beach. I just take this in for a few minutes. Grounding myself into this area. The waters near this Island are crystal clear and turquois in color. There are beautiful Coral reefs to be explored as well.

 From there, I now see a beach club, outside patio area. This the first official "meeting places". Places that we target to see and talk to other members here or whoever we find.

 So that's the beginning. Now we need a map. We need to each create our own map here in the physical of this Island. On this map we can pin point these various "meeting palaces". I have a map that I have used for awhile now. The various meeting places just go put into it. So, take a piece of paper and draw a map.

 We should all have a similar map, I have some important places on my map that. I will describe mine here further. I don't have a scanner on my computer and don't really know how to post a image of it anyways. (Being computer illiterate and all, lol)

 My Island is "oblong" in shape. The "beach" is on the southern coast of the Island. The right side of the Island is all Mountains, Valley, Waterfalls and Caves. The north side of the Island is where the large waves can be found for those that like to surf or just admire this scenic area. The left side of Island seems to be where we find buildings, such as "The Retrieval Center", "The Healing Center" "The Park" and a strange building where "simulations" occur. We can call that one "The Simulation Chamber. In the center of the Island is enormous Pyramid. It is gleaning and glowing white and is a real site to see. I call this the "Power Point".                          
 
 The "Meeting Places" are found at the beach patio, the top of the Mountain, (where we find ourselves high above the clouds0, the "Waterfall", (since they are so epic and enjoyable), the Park ,(where we find benches) and lastly the Caves, (the darkness is akin to a "Void" experience. There are also various "portals" to be found in other places that you wish to explore.

 I have found many times that a simple visit there will always lead to some kind of adventure. For the longest time I saw this place as a "launching pad". But then I realized I was already there. This place is "infinite". Many times upon a return there, I will find that there are numerous changes and new adventures to explore.

 For now though the most important thing is choosing one of those various meeting places and going to see what can be found there. We can start in simple and alter it at will. With your suggestions and input we can build onto this and make it a "real" NPR destination that can be accessed by others. I hear constantly these days how we seem to all be "waking up" and the collective consciousness strengthening. Well, let's put that to the test.

 To finish this I want to say we are going into this with the mindset of a positive experience. We are going to meet other "like minded, good natured people/spirits/beings". Anyone that goes into this with negative intentions will find themselves "voted off" the Island. Just remember, the collective strength of many far outdoes the strength of a few

 Feel free to post your own suggestion or share your experiences with this. Let's finally do this. No giving up. We can make this a whole new adventure here on the Astral Pulse. I believe, as I have been shown, the amazing power of the collective consciousness. Come and join us in this adventure.

 Thank you and safe travels!  :-)

Thanks, Lumaza! I will definitely be asking to be taken to this island during APs and see what happens. If each of us put some though to mentally give energy strength to this place and make it stable so to speak, part of our spirits will be there and that will draw us to this place during dreams, LDs, APs because we can build that connection. I think this is a really good idea, not only for the experienced APers, but for anyone else that practices, because this is a fun technique, not boring. Everyone will be imagining they are at a beautiful island. don't we all do daydreaming often and think of vacation places, getting lost in thoughts. I used to do a lot of day dreaming in school LOL, when I get bored. Then after half an hour when I snap back I don't even recall what the teacher was talking about.  For the record I was a good student, straight As, but certain lectures were just unbelievably boring to me to a point of a brain exhaustion, so I had to day dream.

FYI, motion imagining is my key to AP. The most successful of all techniques. So, definitely recommending it to be implemented along with whatever everyone is doing. If you imagine that you are swaying from side to side while falling asleep, the chance of awakening during sleep in sleep paralysis is very big. Keep doing it every night and be patient. Especially useful is when you briefly wake up during the night, to go to the bathroom, or turn, before passing back to sleep, remember to start swaying. To make it more interesting, you can imagine that you are in a small boat approaching the Pulse island.

I believe that as well. The more we all access this place, the stronger it will get. The "collective" at work.

 Daydreaming is great way of accessing your "mind's eye".

Yes, you have mentioned that here on the Pulse Forums before. I find "motion imagining" to be incredibly powerful for getting into a good deep NPR focus. I use it every time I Phase.
 Whenever I focus on the left or right direction, I get the mental imagery of a being on or in a boat, plane or some other vehicle that is leaning or veering to one side or another. When I play with pivoting or pinballing a left, then right focus, I feel like I am on a boat swaying in the waves. If you come onto Astral Island from the north shore side, you will indeed be in some large waves.

Ok. I'm in.  8-)

I like remembering how during the Doorway Method collective experiment about 2 years or so ago (we posted on that Transients forum) you saw the figurine I put on the table then. So we had a connection. It worked. This motivates me.

I'm ready to try this again. I postponed other 'projects' since I am not good at projecting at the moment anyway and maybe a 'fresh' and desirable target to reach will do it. Looks like it is a worthwhile destination to try. Never did before, not been to the old Island project back then.

Regarding your point (3) Visualisation a side comment: My main problem is with keeping up the image not with creating it. Even a stable image like any kind of object or a candle with a light always changes all the time and I cannot keep it stable. (Funny point: the candle always gets blown out by s.o. not seen, I can never avoid it. then I light it again and it gets blown out again, kind of a loop, well maybe the loop is stable at least for a while but then also changes for sth else...).

I did not yet read all of your 'map' description but would firmly recommend you upload a picture you draw of your place. A map after all is something to best visually communicated. Take a photo with your smartphone if you have one? Then just use the code "[image][/image]" with the link in between. Should work.

Will try to get to the Island tonight already (still doing wb2b method). See you there.

Okay, me too. The first place I'm heading is the beach, been a long time since I've been to a real one. I think I'll stand there for a while and see what the current drags in. I like imagining motion as well and on the beach it's easy to feel the ocean breeze and winds buffeting you back and forth. With your eyes closed listening to the crash of waves, call of gulls and feeling salt spray on your face warmed by the sun.

On the map I'm pretty sure they don't have to match up per se. Like your Park or Waterfall, we can all sort of build our own but at the same time we should all be able to step into a scene both created by ourselves AND each other quite easily.

Great enthusiasm Lu. :-)

I remember that as well. I think it was some form of a Buddha figurine. Unfortunately, it didn't gain much traction though. I guess it was the "flavor of the day". Perhaps people "tried it", (I hate that word), but gave up on it too quickly.

Good, it will be like the EIC Forum experiment reborn again. It actually seems just like that at the moment, with the same members that did it there, doing it here as well. We just need Bee, Novice, Plume and few others!  :-)

Been there, done that. I experienced the same thing for the longest time as well. Then I just learned to let go and allow what's going to happen to happen. Many times the visual came full circle back to where it started. I have had countless times though where a simple imaging of a flame or my toy top would morph into a whole new experience. If it did, I allowed it to. At that time I guess there was something more important that I needed to see. It happens so much that I now use the term "Hi-jacked" to explain it.

That I can't do. My landline doesn't take photos, lol!  :-D I can borrow someone else's phone to do it I guess.

For some reason, this strikes me as a dynamite post at just the right time! Thank you Lumaza! Gonna "sticky" this one! The energy level is at a slow, rolling boil!

A few years ago, I tried various attempts to get to AP Island, without success. Now, after having done some courses at TMI, I have a much stronger idea and feel for what needs to happen.

It is all about Intent, but also proper 'targeting', and Lumaza's OP offers a great and succinct description of the process, a distillation of the methods and likely the best I've seen yet.

Also great comments from everyone! I would just like to add several ideas, possibly some nuances to look for, as people work toward this shared meeting place.

This is likely an 'area' of the NP that Monroe recognizes as Focus 27. It includes the Park and a Reception Center and a Hospital or Health Center, a Library which may involve the Akashic...and a few other 'facilities'. My experience and understanding of F27 is still inconsistent and incomplete, but I think that I can offer some ideas that may help newcomers with how to approach this concept with the necessary perspective. At least, these are the qualities and distinctions that became apparent to me:

Whether it is Astral Pulse Island or TMI's version of F27 or any number of versions of the Belief System Territories in F24/25/26 such as Valhalla, the Elysian Fields, or any other version of religious Heaven...it can all be understood in terms of energy and frequency. They are all energy constructs reinforced by and through consciousness. They are energy frameworks. And when we choose to consciously approach them and explore them, we come from slightly differing consciousness perspectives, hence a large part of our confusion and frustration. A 'collective consciousness' construction, such as Astral Pulse Island which we are contemplating, may already exist alongside this NP area of the Afterlife/F27. Or we may readily create it. There are likely no space limitations, so the potential for creation is possibly infinite. I think that one perspective to keep in mind is that you will create your specific and unique AP Island, and so will each of us. They will each be slightly different from all the others, but since they are energy/consciousness in nature the key similarity will be their ability to 'link' to one another. And that 'linkage' can take some time to develop. What we are creating in our individual explorations of this specific construct are 'convergent points', each of our own individual constructs that serve as portals or convergence points to this common consciousness area. What I have learned is that it is not so complicated or difficult as you may think at first; it is actually easier than first appears. Nonetheless, patience and determined effort are necessary. My experience at TMI has shown me that it comes in un-even parts for different people: some will find it unexpectedly easy, some requiring extra effort, and some a bit difficult. I am from the difficult category, so I can report that with effort, it can be done.

In my own case, the first problem was 'tuning in' to the proper frequency. At TMI, I have learned that many people require two or three days to find the right frequency, to get up to speed, per se, before they get any meaningful experiences. Along the way, some lessons can be learned. One of those lessons, for me, was sensing my way through energy. Only then did I start getting glimpses at first, and then more complete experiences of the various areas of F27. A key insight for me was that as my glimpses gradually became longer and stronger visuals, I realized that I was raising and aligning my frequency with the energy structure of F27. And sometimes I could tune into it, and other times not. But the process forced me to stay flexible and willing to try different techniques. I followed and explored the colors, the energies; and in doing so, I learned some things about energy. I tried 'priming the pump', starting conversations, creating interactions...all that was unsuccessful. Then I thought to try visualizing two people from an adventure from years before...and they magically appeared and instantly took control of the experience. I was stunned at how well that worked!

So, like Lumaza says, you have to be willing to practice and put the effort into this. Stay flexible and try different techniques along the basic Phasing structure Lumaza has outlined.

Another insight that was explained to me and definitely helped to ease my frustrations:

There are no absolutes to any of this, at least at the levels of experiences we are describing. There is no perfect Focus 10. Or Focus 15. Or The Void (which TMI defines as F15). Or Focus 21 or 27 or any of it. Or Frank's F2 or F3 or F4.

What was explained to me, and I felt was very reassuring was that there are many degrees to all these levels. They are just reference points, road signs...in other words they are just approximate indicators of where you are in consciousness. And the take-away is that you can still have the 'experience', you can still get something of benefit from the session; maybe you are supposed to 'click out' or fall asleep and the lesson is learned on a subconscious level. So there can be a Void experience that is 'high' or a Void experience that is 'low'; a F21 experience that is low or medium. My point is that we can be laying there thinking that we are not relaxed enough, not quiet enough, not deep enough...and actually we are. So don't ruin it, don't quit, don't give up. You may, in fact, be in just the perfect state of mind to receive a teaching at a level you were simply unaware of.

Another perspective I found helpful:

In most sessions you will never be 100% anything.

In some of the best sessions you are 5% Physical and 95% Non-Physical.
But most sessions are of lesser proportions:
25% Physical/75% NP
50%/50%
60% Physical/25% NP/15% Bored-Distracted
15% Physical/15% Asleep/70% NP
90% Asleep/5% NP/5% ?

And the percentages can shift during a session. The key is to not get frustrated and just go with the flow of what presents itself.

In the Leland interpretation (which I happen to agree with and notice in my own experiences) it can break down even further:

You can be 5% Physical and various percentages of consciousness within the Etheric, Astral, Mental and possibly Causal energy body levels. At various times, I have detected 5% Physical, 5% Etheric, 20% Astral, 60% Mental and possibly a hint of 5% or more of Causal or higher energy. I honestly do not know; all I can say is that I do know that I am now sensing at this level under the right conditions, and the differences are becoming more noticeable for me.

Hope that gives helpful perspective as it did for me.

I hear the water is quite warm there!  :-)

 In the past I grounded myself on the beach by picking up handfuls of sand and watching how the sand sifted back to the earth from between my fingers. I would then slowly begin to use my peripheral vision to see what would catch my attention. That's when I saw the cool little patio beach club. It wasn't busy at all though. I felt it "intimate", but really relaxing. I would just sit there and watch the Ocean and anything else around it.
 Novice, from the EIC Forum said she would actually look down on the beach from a mountainous perch overlooking it. I did that as well. A few times that led to "slingshot"/"cannonball experience.

I agree. The only points that should be on everyone's maps is the "waypoints", known as the meeting spots. That would be high up in the mountains, down on the beach, the Park, the Caves and we should add in front of the Pyramid. The Pyramid holds many unique experiences. The Park kind of plays into a area of focus that is mentioned often in Monroe Institute lessons. As I have heard that is. I know it used to be one of their main locations to meet. I think Bruce Moen also used it in meeting people for Retrievals or people that have already transitioned over that have some kind of message to give.

 I chose those locations or should I say those locations have been chosen for us because they all have their own "characteristics". The mountains/valleys, etc are great places for soaring through. This mountain goes way up into the clouds. The view up there is astonishing. The  Cave was chosen for us because of the darkness that is akin to a "Void" experience. Moving forward in the darkness can lead to some rather interesting things. The beach, because that's where it all started. The beach would be the first waypoint on the list. The Pyramid. It's a Pyramid, come on, lol. No explanation needed there!  :-D

 The other buildings, like the Retrieval Cathedral, Healing Center and so on are there so your Island experience will give you what you "need". It's like "one stop shopping", lol. Like I said though this is in it's infancy. There is plenty of room for adjustments. Let's just see where "it" wants to go and enjoy the ride for now!  :-)

I can connect your first and second sentence nicely. It was a Buddha figurine but you actually first interpreted it as a Yoda figurine which is not far from it.

And since you said it (I know we have a thread on it here on the Pulse about trying vs. doing):

Just a short-report: tonight only weird dreams but one involved me being on a kind old sailboat / ship. So maybe that is the first signpost.

I like that it 'links to' Focus 27 where I wanted to go anyway for my 'retriever training' etc. So this motivates me even more.

I agree with the idea of (what I call) 'Interfacing' where everyone has their own 'view' or interface but it is still a connected place - or it's like if we all do connect to the internet via our computers, no matter be they desktops, phones, tablets, notebooks, maybe even with different 'skins' or customizations/settings (colours, fonts, etc.) ... but are still literally 'on the same page'. What a fitting metaphor methinks.  :wink:

Hi All,

Even though I'm not an experienced traveller like most people here I am going to try and join in on this experiment.  I read through this thread yesterday before I went to sleep and I did have a strange dream that had something to do with travelling to different areas of consciousness.  I didn't get many details as this was one of my first dreams of the night and my recall for the early dreams is not generally as good as later ones during the night. 

I am going to see if I can visit Astral Pulse Island via a LD.  If I am successful than I would like to leave an item behind at one of the meeting places to see if anyone else picks up on it. 

Cheers,
T

I only saw Star Wars, the first one. I don't know why, but for some reason the other movies never really interested me. I guess that's because I don't really enjoy sequels that much. With my fascination of the Universe and other Beings you would think I would have definitely been in one of those long lines waiting to see it, lol!

 But, the Yoda character has always been a special one to me. His Buddhic presence is always felt!  8-)

 Thanks for the share Volgerle. It really fits the "try over do" conversation here!  :-)

The only Dream scenario I can remember that remotely pertains to a Island was some guy, kind of "Tarzanesc", in a loin cloth and all, helping me navigate through a Jungle adventure. Astral Island has infinite applications and possibilities so the fact that there could be a jungle of some sort isn't a far stretch.

 Every single Author and guest speaker on the Radio shows I listen to that talk about OBEs/APs, even LDs tell the their audience and readers that just listening/reading to or about their conversation at hand will likely lead to a experience that night. The thing we want though is to keep the ball rolling. We aren't looking for a "one and done" here. To grow with this, we need to evolve as well.

 No "ifs" though. We will use the word "when" instead!  :wink:

I did my daily Meditation and placed an item at the base of some steps somewhere on the Island. 

I will focus my intent and energy on this item on a daily basis as well as at night to give it substance!  'WHEN' I get to the island in a NP experience I will make sure it is still there.

 I just completed my daily Phase soak session as well.

 I was shown to elaborate a bit more on my chosen technique for reaching a good NP focus. Mine as most of you know here is by "Phasing". A simple transition from here to there. Why I enjoy it so much. It's the journey there that I enjoy. There is so much to learn, especially if you are "fine tuning" your own technique. So, I shall explain my technique in detail in hope that you can find something that will work for you as well.

 I began by getting into the water (my bathtub), getting comfortable, then closing my eyes.

 I then did my "ritual", which consists of my Healing Temple, where I focus on helping people I know that are in need. I then moved to my Mantra, that accompanies my elemental focus. Above I spoke about visualizing using the "Mind's eye". When I focus on the elements earth, air, fire and water, I get really strong images of mental associations with each of those elements. It's definitely a great idea to add to your own process. I see these though from mindset of "remembering" something associated with them. When I do, I do actually feel a sensation of my eyes looking upwards, like one does when a idea "pops" into their minds.

 That whole process takes me but 5 minutes to do. Now I am left just "noticing" the darkness before my closed eyes. I now initiate the mental imaging of forward movement. I now am experiencing the cave scenario. Once in awhile I can see some kind of image on the walls of this hall or cave. Still I stay the course. Now for some reason I get the impulse to check how deep I really am. So, to do that, I stop the forward motion and reverse it. At first, I get the sensation of moving backwards and begin seeing the same visuals I had already passed. Then I get a strong mental overload sensation and the next thing I know, I am moving forward again, but still seeing the visuals I had already passed. I figure that what happened is that a 360 degree awareness had just kicked in. So, once again I stopped the motion and reversed it, so I was going forward again. I then see a visual overlay. I am moving down the darkness of cave, but a visual overlay appears of moving quickly over a vast ocean or waterway. That was really cool. In the past when a ghost image appeared, I would then create a overlay of sorts where I would see the numbers on a scale beginning with the Schuman frequency of 7.83, I then see the line or gauge going up or down. I see this as adjusting the frequency to bring he visual into more of vivid view. In turn I am adjusting to "it's" frequency. The visual of moving quickly over water strengthens and becomes the main visual now. It's no longer a "overlay".

 All of a sudden, the physical calls me back. I have to adjust my body in my tub because my shoulder is uncomfortable. I then close my eyes and see that the entire scene has changed. I am now vividly sitting in a chair I guess on the patio of the Beach Club I have been to so many times. The view is beautiful. I do see though that I am not alone. Sitting a few tables in front of me is a man, I guess he is middle aged. He has a striped shirt on with a blue ball cap. I think he may be balding a bit as well. We don't talk. I know he knows I am there. How I know that I don't know, lol, but I do. He is also enjoying the ocean view. His shirt is striped and has color, but it's more like earth tones than anything. He is just there and I don't think he really wanted to stand out.

 I enjoy this visual for a few more moments, then I abort the experience. Physical time elapsed, about an hour and 15 minutes, which is about the norm for my Phase sessions.

 I did also see a new Crystal Amplifier design that I need to create tonight. That seems to be the daily norm as well.

 _________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 On a another note, I have to ask you guys a question. For the past 8 years now I have been experiencing physical vibrations often. They seem like prickly skin and when they get real strong, like they are now, they are accompanied by not only a high pitch sound, but also the sensation of my spine ringing like a bell. That hurts.

 Years ago I talked to the late Dolores Cannon about this and she told me to ask for this "energy flow" to be calmed, when it got to be too much. I did that and it seemed to work. But still at different times in the year, spontaneously it would start up again.

 The feeling is similar to the sensation you feel when you a really focused on a good TV show, book or movie.

 For the last 4 or 5 months this vibration with the ringing spine and high pitch piercing sound has become off the chart. What seems to accompany it though is a incredibly strong sense of "knowing".

 Have any you experienced it or are you experiencing it especially strong now? I have talked to a few of you here on the Pulse about this. But lately it has ramped up quite a bit.

 I have been tested in the past by Doctors pertaining to this. My own Family Doctor, a really good open minded gentleman years ago did actually bring up the idea of some kind of frequency shift occurring. He did that because all of his testing came out negative. I was even sent ot a Neurologist for this and he didn't come to any conclusions either!  :? :|

while I was reading this something round popped in my head, like a ball.  I may be way off, but just wondering if this sudden image had any accuracy.

The item I have placed has special meaning to me with a strong connection and energy of it's own.  I thought this would create a great connection if someone else picks up on it.  It would also show that I was able to focus my intention on placing it over 'there'. 

Not a ball!

Could you describe the steps you place(d) it on more exactly if possible? Then it might be possible for me or all of us to hone in on it better. Is it somewhere inside or outside and what is around it and what is the floor/earth like (sand, grass, stone, asphalt, wooden, etc.)?

Sorry all,  I did not mean to hi-jack this thread by trying to get people to try and guess my placed object.  My intent was to try and create/manifest something in this 'Focus 27' area of consciousness.  People have talked about creating their 'Happy Places' here and returning to them.  This isn't something I have really done yet so I thought I would start of with something small. 

This seems to be a large island with many adventures and things to discover including meeting up with others.  I was hoping that someone would happen across something I created here and mention it in their travels to this place.  If anyone is interested I have left something outside of the Pyramid at the base of some steps.  If anyone comes across something sitting there than feel free to mention it in their adventure.  Would be cool to see if this worked. 

If not...Adventure on!  :-)

I haven't gotten to the Island yet with so much going on. T-Man I think what you did is totally in line with what Lumaza is wanting here. Just a tip, what a person finds may not be described by them exactly as what you placed there so look for similarities. They may only pick up on the color or shape or function or anything related for that matter.

Lumaza, I've recently had quite a bit of ringing and some very high pitches/tones in the ears. But here lately, like the last 2 or 3 weeks that has gone away. I felt like I was getting downloads or something but with no actual awareness. It was rather weird. For me the vibrations tend to come and go. They can last off and on for hours/days even weeks then disappear altogether for weeks at a time. At the moment I don't recall any ringing sensation in the spine.

I know sometimes when I feel especially cognizant it's because 'they' are near. How near, who knows.

I think you hit it on the head Volgerle with your comparison to the internet. :-)

That's pertinent to the topic here T-Man. There's no need to apologize for "Hi-jacking"!   :-)
 
 You are correct, it is a very large Island and since we are starting anew, I am too. That means back to square one. Square one is just arriving on the beach. That's at least my intent during my Phase sessions, while I am consciously aware the entire time. During LDs, all bets are off because then I just seem to become aware of being in a destination itself. I am moving slow with this so I don't miss anything. Yes I have explored this Island scenario many times. But for some reason I thought a "do over" seemed to fit the bill here. That way we can all experience and grow with this together.

 Because of that, I am still in "observer" mode right now. So there is no seeking hidden treasures. Today's experience seemed to be noticing another visitor and the beautiful beach/ocean scenery. The cave adventure happened as a result of a mental imaging directed in front of me. Moving through that darkness is akin to being in a dark cave or long hallway, so it kind of fits the bill here.

 I said that there were other meeting places as well. i just wanted to start simple and then we could go from there. Later we can target them individually. The Island isn't going anywhere, so there is plenty of time to explore it. If we rush with this, we will find that members here may or will get frustrated and abort the whole idea of it. I was told "slow and easy" is the way to success here.

Post by: EscapeVelocity on February 23, 2020, 09:32:03
Several ideas I wish to share:

An additional metaphor to the island-like quality of F27 and/or AP Island is the sense I have noticed a few times of an 'Oasis' type of sense of the place. Both island-like and oasis-like in the sense of rather amorphous and undefined edges to the area, undefined energy...like the whole thing is floating in space or the sea of consciousness...with fuzzy edges to it.

I share that because I think Nameless' point is well taken, in that we may not receive or understand the experience we were expecting, but we should be looking for similarities, and by that I mean similarities in the details, the slight nuances of an experience.  And again, it is all our independent and individual interpretations of what are essentially energy and consciousness constructs. And this is how we are required to focus in and recognize the concepts we are discussing; it is likely an incredibly complex part of our learning. As Leland says, it is all in its most basic forms: Energy and information (data) and consciousness.

I can confirm that such a meeting place can exist; it does at TMI and I have been there, though it was imperfect and incomplete for some of the participants. That does not discount the fact that incredible things can be accomplished within these constructs. It simply builds over time and repeated use. And effort.

Frequency Adjustment

It seems pretty apparent that many of us are going through it. I actually miss the middle-of-the-night vibrations I used to get. Sometimes they shook hell out of me like a midnight thunderstorm; other times they were a warm and gentle reminder of the NP that guided me back to sleep. No downloads for awhile now. This evening I did a TMI cd F25 to start prepping for an upcoming TMI course. I got the vibrations in my hands. I haven't ever had the spinal rush/pain that Lumaza describes. Often I can feel a pressure in my third eye on the brow. My current issues are these: 1- I get 'fliers' out of the corners of my eyes. It may be an age thing, as I am approaching 59. But I get all manner of little dark things or, flashes of light that catch my attention at the edges of my vision. Plus I hear sounds that weren't there: sounds, voices, music. So hey maybe it's just encroaching schizophrenia...
The big one for me is the tinnitus that started some ten years ago. It gets quiet like right now, but it is usually about a 4 on a scale of 10. Ten being rock concert level. It's like crickets and tree frogs on a warm summer's evening in the Southeast of the USA. Almost pleasant at times, but seriously irritating most of the rest. It has rhthyms, it ebbs and flows; I have tried to use it for meditation, but no luck. My last TMI course involved potentially contacting ET intelligence. The first session of that my tinnitus went off the scale. If 10 is a rock concert loud, this was a 12 or 13...I almost pulled off the headphones. One of the trainers explained to me that he had the same issue and that it was likely a form of communication. And like Lumaza mentioned Cannon's advice- you can ask for it to be turned down a bit.

Lumaza,

Have you ever considered that this could be a Kundalini Awakening?  This was the first thing that came to mind when I read this.  It just seems too coincidental with the vibrations, ringing of the spine, high pitch sounds and the strong sense of knowing.  I have read that this can happen quick for some people and very slowly for others.

I have suffered from Tinnitus my entire life.  My left ear is always ringing.  It calms at times but never completely goes away.  I can however tell when a cold or something is coming on before hand because the ringing gets very intense prior to being ill.

@EV
That fuzzy "space" around the island (or F27 if so) area would be the Void for me which is a means to travel anyway for me, I even expect me to arrive via this 'travel mode' there when (not if, yeah Lumaza, .. I got this ...) I finally succeed

@Nameless
A heightened ringing ('Tinnitus') in left or right ear for some phases (sometimes weeks) is also normal for me but I also do not rule out physical or even medical causes, e.g. I still am currently forced to work as part-time telesales agent at a call center agency and have lots of 'stress' for my ears for 5 hours straight on 4 days in the week, all the phone dialing/ringing sounds also sucks a lot, literally on your ears, so maybe that is the main cause (in my case).

@Lumaza
About the energy issues: I remember we talked about this I think many years ago even via pm back then 2011 or so. All I can offer now and did then is my Kundalini energy snake experience I had around 2009 two times (can give link to post), one was legendary for me before my very first wilfully initiated OBE into the 'RTZ' (physical-layer/etheric/PMR-like plane). It was indeed 'spinal' or torso-permeating, 'peristaltic' and 'very brutal' back then, although NOT painful, just like electric current going through you without the pain. I see this past experience today as a kind of a loosening of the energy centers/body that took place, with it also as a kind of 'initiation' of sorts, although a rather reckless one it was.  :wink:

Here it is (again, but posted before on the Pulse for sure):

Regarding 'that guy' as I only read it now in your post from yesterday:

Sitting a few tables in front of me is a man, I guess he is middle aged. He has a striped shirt on with a blue ball cap. I think he may be balding a bit as well. We don't talk. I know he knows I am there. How I know that I don't know, lol, but I do. He is also enjoying the ocean view. His shirt is striped and has color, but it's more like earth tones than anything. He is just there and I don't think he really wanted to stand out.

I have to say it is a bit intriguing although I force myself not come to fast and forgone conclusions if it was really already me and keep an open-minded but skeptical mind.

Anyway, for what it's worth here's why indeed it COULD be a 'me' merely from my meditation / visualisation sessions:

  • If I wear a baseball cap in summer they are always blue-ish
  • I wear striped shirts a lot, some of them are poloshirt types, but also t-shirts
  • Currently at home I was really wearing a earthen-colour (beige) t-shirt with a broader white stripe on it across the chest area - I could upload a pic of both garments (caps and t-shirt) maybe for fun and see how it matches
  • I have a very short-hairstyle (few millimeters with the hair trimmer). It is not a bald/skin-head though. It is thinner at the top though (for years been) so one could argue about the 'balding' process, has not changed or gotten worse for many year though and I almost look like this for over two decades now.
  • I am over 52 now and thus middle-aged, I look younger though as I am often told and am of a normal (thin) body shape, but not too muscular either (question: did the guy have a beard, mostle whiteish goatee-like or white/grey three-day beard or even both in combination?)
  • During the meditation / visualisation I had the strong intent to go to the beach and also (like you do) visit and sit in the club's patio looking at palm trees and out to the sandy beach and at the nice blue-turquois ocean on a sunny day. And also see you sitting there in your chair a few metres away. So this is why we maybe 'met' again? Maybe. It must be noted that it was not a projection but the buddha figurine I put in that room back then worked the same way, telepathically maybe? Therefore I might already have sent an astral 'advance party' image with my focussed intent and visualisation of the 'place' to you and your club?
  • Except for a 'hello there' if at all I really did not want to communicate with you, just to see you there and the beach club / patio and sit there too in a chair. So the guy from more 'far away' also makes sense.
  • I am generally not the guy who wants or seeks to 'stand out' a lot, I am introverted and calm and 'relaxed' - so maybe that in general fits the 'picture' too

@T-Man
All fine and no 'hi-jacking'. Also great for me. I had quite some Remote Viewing successes in an experiment with another forum group (Transients/Roundtable) a while ago, and around that same time also one with Lumaza (see above re. the Yoda figurine and the Doorway Method experiment) and I am always happy to try again if I can repeat this, so I might look for it after I 'landed on the beach' successfully

@All
I think it is really best if we all first 'focus' on 'landing on the beach' and creating our collective (I really hate war term metaphors/references but maye let's see it as a tongue-in-cheek expression) 'D-Day', or maybe better 'API-day' (API = Astral Pulse Island)  8-)

T-Man, I have considered that in the past and brought that up in my discussion with Dolores. I will tell you one thing, if it is some weird kind of prolonged Kundalini Awakening, I wish it would just hurry up a "wake up", lol!  :-D

 The high pitch sound comes in flows. Like EV and Dolores said, a person can ask for it to be lessened. It's just the heightened sense of awareness that accompanies it so unique. I always wanted to see how far it would go. I know we are being helped with this recent Astral Island exploration and I don't want to disturb that "flow". The constant vibrations I can handle, the ringing in the ears as well. It's the ringing spine that gets to be too much at times.

@EV
I remember that little experiment we did on EIC and how I entered the Island then. I dropped down through a sort of cloud tunnel. I can confirm the cloudy misty edges. We could call it AIDay (artificial intelligence) Wait, not, meant Astral Island, lol

@T-Man @Volgerle
I can relate to the tinnitus which usually only affects me if I have a head cold/flu. With the other I get little clicks along with that sense of knowing. Those clicks are always behind the ear and often come with a visual click as well. The visual is like donning a pair of colored glassed. Like a lens is dropped in front of my non-physical vision. Feels like an adjustment.

@Volgerle
Sounds like a hit to me although I get the hesitation in making a hard claim.

@Everyone
Didn't make it last night but not for lack of effort. Guess I'm just worn out and sleep is more needed than anything. So I'll just give it another go. Loving this thread yall. Thanks LU!!!

That's a great description of what's occurring. The spinal ring does feel like a constant jolt of electricity. It gets worse with incoming weather changes as well. Here in Minnesota our current winter has been like a Rollercoaster. One week it's freezing and lots of snowfall. The next it's a spring thaw. This year we are experiencing a very strange winter here.

 I had read that thread in the past. Thanks for the "refresher"!  :-)

Some things are dead on, some not so much. The shirt was "Polo-ish" style. There was beige in it and it was "earthen" in color. The ball cap was blue. I couldn't see if there was any team name or design on the front of it because I only saw it from the back. I figured him to be balding because of how the hat sat on his head. It looked like he wore a ball cap often.
 Now to the differences. He was clean shaven. At least that's what I could see from behind him. He wasn't thin. But he wasn't heavy set either. I would say right in the middle.
 Just a note though, many times when I see a person I know in a NP visual, I don't see them at their current age or even appearance. I always see a younger version of them, especially when I do my daily "healing modality" to aide them.

I agree 100% with this. I personally am only focusing on the "beach landing".  Like I said "baby steps" here. We will apply the KISS rule here, "keep it simple stupid"! We will evolve into this further when the time is right to. Like EV masterfully explained above above, the more complicated we make it, especially right off the bat, the more likely it is to fail, like so many other experiments we have attempted.

Post by: Lumaza on February 24, 2020, 03:48:39
 I just finished today's Phase session and last thing I saw in it was more of a mental suggestion and that it is a great idea. especially for longevity here with this, that indeed we need to keep things "simple stupid", as the word "KISS" applies to this. This means reporting as well. We can keep reporting more to a point form quick process. That way daily reports won't become "tedious".

 The new reporting format will include the basics of your experience and if we need to know more, for comparisons, then we can ask for more of a detailed report on your experience.

 So, I will start here with today's experience.

 Method of NPR: Phasing.
 Here you can put whatever yours was, examples Phasing/LD/OBE/ or other

 Experience:
 -start with Healing modality/Elemental imaging Mantra
 -flat darkness - initiate forward motion imaging
 -moving though darkness, changes to water in the tunnel/now underwater/come up out of the and beach is in view
 -Scenery-beach active today-volleyball game with young adults/lady in likely her late 20's, early 30's braiding her daughters hair on the beach. Daughter likely 6-8 years of age
 -everything else is the same/beach club, etc in background
 -major change in scene/now moving over a busy city/many people on the street/car too, but not today's cars/spent time observing there
  -fade to 3d black
-brief image of new Crystal Amp design to create tonight
 -mental explanation of reporting format

 Notes of interest:
 The only thing I purposely intended to see was the beach landing. As you can see, there were other destinations beyond my control as well. The image of my new creation that I have to do tonight was spontaneous, even though it has become a regular part of my daily Phasing practice here. The last information about the reporting process came out of the blue as well. I was not thinking of that at all. The thought appeared out of nowhere and when t did, I could actually see it all in detail along with the message of it's importance to this entire process.
 We can still see patterns and similarities in our experiences and when, not if, we do, we can then have the person reporting explain the "aspect" further upon request.

 Any other ideas or suggestions from you guys to give this Astral Island project longevity would be much appreciated!  :-)

 Thank You

Yesterday's meditation to the Island was somewhat successful.

I imagined myself already on the island standing in front of the Pyramid.  The Pyramid is an easy thing for me to visualize so I have stuck with it.  From here I visualized a sign along a path that pointed towards the Beach Club.  I followed this path with the intent on reaching the Beach Club and seeing Volgerle sitting at a table.  I brought two beers with me and introduced myself to Volgerle and offered him a beer.  I visualized this for quite awhile during my meditation.  I had no other visualizations or intent planned...only to meet up at the Beach Club.  Shortly before my meditation ended I got a short scene in front of me.  A waitress/hostess showed up at the table with two more beers.  This was a 3rd person point of view visualization and I really only saw one man sitting at the table but felt I was there next to him as well.  He had blondish/grey hair, middle aged and was wearing what I think was a white t-shirt.  This only lasted a few seconds but definitely felt I was on the island and as I stated this was nothing I had tried to visualize. 

Will keep on with the meditations!

 Great job T-Man!  :-) I am glad to hear you are finding success with this.

 My own experiences lately have been "hi-jacked" over to something that is more pressing at the moment. MJ and I have our second largest show of the year, this one being a Renaissance Faire, that is in the first week of April. Every time I focus on the Astral Island, I get directed towards a new Crystal Amplifier design. I swear I am filling orders on some kind of " NP conscious" level. I feel like each one of my Crystal Amplifiers is being made specially for a certain person. I questioned MJ on that. I asked her if a Artist does indeed feel that they are creating a tailor made piece. She said no. I didn't expect that answer. She said that some make things for income, others do it for passion and keep their Artwork to a personal level. I have to admit though, I haven't become used to that word Artist being directed at me. To me a Artist is the same as MJ. MJ went to Art school. All her life she created beautiful things. Our home is filled with a lot of her creations. With me it was different. I did a Phase soak session, began targeting Doorways, opened one and found myself in some kind of unique wire wrap Art Gallery. When I ended my session, I went to the hardware store, bought some cheap aluminum wire, brought it home and somehow began making tree designs. I incorporated Crystals into the designed, then mounted them on driftwood. It's like I had been doing them for years. The coolest thing was when we went to sell them, the people buying them seemed to "see" their real purpose. We found out that in their verbal reactions to them. That was 2 years ago now and still almost every day I am shown a new design to create the following night.

 So yes, I can see that now is not the time for me. I started this Astral Island thing up again to get the ball rolling. Many of my Phase sessions led me to this place. So, I guess for now, this exercise here wasn't really direct at me. I knew when it started that it was all about a "group dynamic". I did what I was shown to do and created the thread. Now we will see where it leads. You guys will be the ones that determine that.

Last night I did an effort to visualize the island. I am doing this kind of excerise between sleep cycles. My focus was on a D-Day kind of landing on the shore with a pyramid on the horizon.
I ended up somewhere in Central or South America in the jungle in the neighbourhood of some old Aztec/Incan/Mayan temple what looked like a pyramid. I have almost no knowledge about ancient Indian culture, so excuse me if I am wrong. Could be an astral version or just fantasy (also astral version lol!).
Not the Island but it was a nice trip!

Regards,

Erik

 Yesterday during my daily Phase soak session, I had a Astral Island experience and although it was kind of brief, before I got hi jacked into a my focus on new Artwork, it was incredibly vivid and got me to thinking.

 So, last night I got a PM from a valued member here and in the return PM to this person, I mentioned my brief Astral Island experience. To my surprise, this person PMed me right back saying that what I had seen was very similar to a mental construct that they had created themselves. (I am purposely avoiding saying the person's name here because their conversation me was a private one and I wish to honor that. If they wish, they can elaborate more here. But until that time, I won't say anything more about it}

 In today's Phase soak I contemplated this phenomenon further. Especially since I saw another mental construct of what I suppose would be another person focusing on this area. In today's session, I became aware I was nearing a shoreline. It wasn't a beach. It was more of a rocky cropping. There was a home about 20 feet above the ocean shore. This home was gorgeous. The bottom half of the walls were cobblestone, with the top half being made of logs.  There a small bridge in front of it, that had a small creek flowing underneath that. Kind of strange being so close to ocean. They also had a huge shed like building that looked similar to their home construct.

 When I attempted to enter the home, I found myself in a dark cave like scenario, just feeling around. This was the exact thing that not only happened in the experience that I share via PM with another member last night here, but also other experiences I have had on this Island. Every time I went to enter their home there, I would find myself in the 3D darkness, feeling around like I was in a cave.

 My take from it was that this was a "personal construct" and because of that I wasn't allowed inside of it. Hence why upon entering I was thrust into the 3D dark zone again.

 In the opener here, I spoke of locations on the map that I had made. One of my favorite spots on this Island has been at the top of the highest mountain, pretty well in the clouds. From there I can see almost everything on this Island. The view kind of reminds me of some kind of Disney land, theme park. It's easy to see the different themes on the different parts of the Island. I have never seen actual homes though. Those seem to always be left out of the picture. But is it by design? Meaning, do I not see them because they don't want to be viewed, as in being a personal construct means that they aren't meant to be viewed by all. That got me to thinking about the importance of "inviting" people in to your own personal place. I always make a habit of inviting "like minded, god natured, Humans and entities" into my experiences, I feel it's an important part of "intent". I'm sure that gets overlooked in many cases though. Not everyone is aware the fact that they haven't opened their Happy Place up to others. Because of that, they might not experience any others being in their area at all.

 This is just another thing you might want to be conscious of when making your own intended destinations as well. I guess I was being shown this to just show another example of the fact that even the little things count too. By getting in the habit of doing things like this you will find that that will to manifest "like minded, good natured" Humans and entities in the NPR seems to begin working here in this physical realm as well!  :-) 8-) That a win win in my books!  :-)

Lumaza,

Interesting thought about the 'Personal Construct'.  Something I will consider in future attempts.

I finally had an LD a couple nights ago (just posted about being sick in another thread) and attempted to go to Astral Island.  This didn't work and I ended up waking up.  Will keep on trying!

That is a very interesting take Lumaza and something I hadn't really thought about. Makes sense though.

Good observation.

 I know that many of us today here are busy and our mind's seem to be totally consumed by current events, but I'm curious how many people here still access or even attempt to access this Astral Island focus?

I am still attempting to access Astral Island but things haven't been going well for me lately.  All NP experiences have stopped for me since about the first week of March.  I think I am just physically and mentally low on energy and I have very poor dream recall right now.  Some nights I just don't even remember any dreams and I usually have a very good dream recall.  I have found that my awareness in the dreams I do remember is very low as well.  Hopefully I can get things back on track!  :|

Could we format the island based off some pictures of some island or fantasy island. I didn't see any links or pictures so it's kind of hard to know where to go. Not that I couldn't follow the intent to the island, it's just that without a defined concrete area we all observed once it can be hard to meet up there

I'll look for some fantasy islands or something like that if we're interested in this idea.

hmmm also maybe we should add some npc's too and see how they can be used as catalyst for interactions.

You are not alone with that. I have talked with many people that are experiencing the same thing. They used to be able to have APs/LDs/OBEs quite regularly, but for some reason it all came to a screeching halt in about February/March. They are still blocked. This made me come to the conclusion that there is something seriously wrong with the "collective consciousness" at the moment. What it is? I have no clue!  :? :-o :|

 Yes, I know there are pictures somewhere in one of the Astral Island stickies here. I myself am not adept at posting though. I am basically computer illiterate!  :-D

Same here, nowadays I only have strange dreams. I am sensing mass consciousness standing on a crossroad. I feel the masses' tension, what's next, what does the future hold, etc. Lots of questions and very few answers. I am trying to shake off this invading external stream of information, which is not mine, but somehow I feel responsible to help on a higher level to balance things out. I feel obligated to be in tune of what is happening and be a part of the "remediation force". If I don't,  I start feeling like I am abandoning my people (Earth). Definitely a very strange situation, totally qualifying as a difficult level of a game. It feels truly like we are in one.
